First Chance Race January 4!


The Vasaloppet First Chance Race is scheduled for Saturday, January 4 beginning at 11am at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center.

The First Chance Race will offer skiers the option of a 5km or 15 km race on portions of the Vasaloppet race course. It is the first event of the Vasaloppet winter race series. That series also includes the Moraloppet on Feb. 1, the Vasaloppet races on Feb. 8, and the Last Chance race in March.

Skiers can register online through January 3 or on the morning of the race. Race distances are dependent on the snowmaking conditions through December.


Vasaloppet volunteers honored at art show

The Many Faces of Vasaloppet sculpture project was on display at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center May 17-18. Visitors were able to see the aluminum casting of over 150 Vasaloppet volunteers as well as meet the artist, Keith Ravio and others who have assisted in the two-year project. The future vision is to have all the castings in a permanent outdoor display to honor the volunteer spirit of Vasaloppet USA.

Last Chance Ski Race, Saturday March 23, 2019 – STARTS 9 AM

The snow is melting quickly so let’s have a ski race before it’s all gone. We still have snow and fun trails at the Nordic Center, so we will groom the best Loop, 5-10km in length, and you can race 1 – 3 laps depending on length. Classic tracks will be set where conditions permit and we will likely have a Classic race.
The Top three male and female finishers in the longest classic and longest skate events will be recognized.
Race starts at 9 am. Registration begins at 7:15am Race day registration only. Last Registration accepted at 8:45AM NO LATE REGISTRATIONS so be sure to arrive early enough to register or you won’t be timed. Fee will be $1 per Kilometer, not to exceed $20.
Let’s hit the trails one last time for the season and have some fun – hope to see you here in Mora this Saturday!

Maps detail difference in Saturday’s race courses

Skiers entered in The Classic Race this Saturday will follow a slightly different course than the Vasa and Dala Races. VASA/DALA. THE CLASSIC. THE BELL RINGER/TEAM. The Classic is now only a 2 lap race but still is 42km since it uses several “classic-only” sections of trail. The Bell Ringer and The Team course is at 13.5k this year and is a single lap race.. The Vasa and Dala run on the same course. The Vasa is a 3 lap race at 54km and the Dala is 2 laps for 36km.
